1  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Re: "Team Jacob" t-shirt [The Twilight Saga] on: August 08, 2008 11:44:36 PM
I actually really liked it, and I'm annoyed somewhat at the people who flat out hated it. I mean, no it wasn't perfect, but it was fine, it wasn't heinous or awful. I liked New Moon and Eclipse a bit better, but Breaking Dawn rounded out the series/saga well. Oh and the saga questioning was mostly me musing to myself as at our Barnes & Noble for the release they had posters calling it the Twilight Saga and I was like "Did I miss some huge Twilight Memo? Since when is it a saga?"

Thanks so much to both of you

Also, my dad can't knit worth shit. So i'm working on a new gryffindor scarf, but I lost the maroon yarn after the first stripe. so progress is at a definite halt.

Very nice!
I remained Team Edward straight through the series (saga? What are the requirements of a saga? When was it decided that it was a saga? I missed the memo...) but one of my best friends is Team Jacob, and the other is Team I'll Take Whomever Bella Doesn't. (she's also grammatically correct...)

This is much better than most of the shirts I saw at the Breaking Dawn Release here.
What'd you think of the book, by the way?
4  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Lace Issues on: August 07, 2008 11:11:24 PM
All right, so I've learned only just the basics of knitting from my Aunt Colleen. And by the basics, I mean, knit, purl, cast on, bind off.
Thus far I've been able to make scarves. Lots of scarves. My favorite of which (the Gryffindor Scarf) has been lost to the world. My Dad was in charge of making sure it got home from winter break, but alas, it did not. However, as I search for the right yarn to make a replacement, I though to myself "Wouldn't it be excellent if I could make a sweater. You know, one I'd actually wear." I'm a rather finicky 17 year old and as far as fashion goes, most knitted things go out the window.
BUT I found a pattern I LOVE and I feel like I can make.
I have one issue.
The lace confuses me.


This is the pattern.
I get the knitting and purling on sides, I get the knitting two together.
What the hell is "slipping two stitches as if you're going to knit them, and then knit them together"? Isn't that just knitting two stitches together?
Also, what does it mean to "yarn over"?

I'm sorry if these are stupid questions, but I've made enough scarves, and I'm sick of people thinking that I'm making Cat-in-the-Hat-hat. By knitting. I'd like to try this, but I don't know how to start as the pattern starts you off with the lace.

Thanks in advance for your help.
I hope to see you all much more frequently!
5  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Beads: Completed Projects / 4 Necklaces and 1 Pair of Earrings on: June 21, 2007 09:48:47 PM
This is my first post! Call me Chelsea,I'm 15 and pretty new to jewelry making. I've been hovering around here a little bit, not posting or anything, just hanging out and watching everything you all are posting, and figured it was about time I put some stuff up. Please be nice, I've only been making jewelry for a little bit!

That's one I made for my friend, Amanda. It's for her birthday.
Swarovski and a pretty bead I found.

Swarovski & 2 little glass hearts.

These are made from thick wire and 2 swarovski crystals (as well as one that died in the process of being made. We mourn it's loss) After shaping the wire, I had to hammer it so it would stay in place (hence the death of one crystal)

And finally, this one took me all through Monty Python and the Meaning of Life AND Monty Python and the Life of Brian to make. It's a three stranded necklace. One strand is chain with a fused dichrotic glass heart charm. One is turqouise seed beads. And the other is white seed beads with blue crystal-like beads in there.

edit: forgot this one!

This is for my mom for her birthday. It's a shell we picked up in florida and a clear bead.
All right so there you go! Fire away!

I like the cell phone dangle idea, they'd look nice like that. They look awesome, but my main point of writing this was to say that sharpies rule the world!

I agree completely with the person who wrote that it was a "fairy necklace." It's stunning, the kind of thing I'd introduce myself to a person I don't know just to compliment. That's absolutely gorgeous!

Those are so cool! Where do you get those beads? I never seem to find them in the colors I'm trying to find.

those are so pretty! I just learned MOP today too!
They look very professional, and I love the vibrancy of the colors!

Emerald and Ruby aren't exactly what I'd think of as an ideal combo, but they look great in this necklace!
And they have a wizard of Oz connection (emerald city, ruby slippers...)

I love the raw Emeralds, where do you get them?
